Bridges to be funded

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

South Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil has agreed to cre­ate a de­pre­ci­a­tion re­serve to fund bridges as part of the Long Term Plan process. This is the one part of the road­ing ac­tiv­ity that should have a de­pre­ci­a­tion re­serve for fu­ture re­place­ments but doesn’t. Deputy chief ex­ec­u­tive Ben Smit said bridge re­place­ments were in­fre­quent but ex­pen­sive. The $1.5 mil­lion re­place­ment of the Ho­ra­hora bridge, planned for

2018/19 is an ex­am­ple of this. Next week will be the last edi­tion on the South Waikato News for the 2013 year. The pa­per will be back on Jan­uary 8, 2014.
